Do Not Disturb: Review

Do Not Disturb: Review

Chloe (Kimberley Laferriere) and Jack (Rogan Christopher) are on their honeymoon. They’ve been together forever and feel that this is the right time to get away. However, behind closed doors it feels like the relationship between Chloe and Jack is far from perfect. Jack has a drinking problem which he thinks he can handle and Chloe wants to start a family, although she wants Jack to grow up first.

Their arguments run through the rest of their time away and are escalated even further when they spend the night with their friends, Wendy (Janet Porter) and Wayne (Christopher McKenna).

Seemingly stuck in a relationship which neither of them has the guts to leave, this leads them to the beach where an enraged man gives them a drug which he says has opened his mind and cannot close it again. However, Chloe and Jack don’t heed his warning as they see an opportunity laid ahead of them.



Do Not Disturb is a horror comedy written and directed by John Ainslie. Showing the breakdown of a relationship in the most unusual way, it’s an allegory that many couples may recognise.

As with most drugs, especially the ones that have unknown effects, things start to happen that they can’t explain. There are the usual side effects that people may associate with drugs such as heightened emotions and hunger, but these feelings start to take over more than they expected.

Jack has a more blasé approach to it than Chloe who’s starting to feel bad about losing time and not being able to control herself. An experience that gets much worse when she realises that they’re starting to physically hurt each other.

Do Not Disturb is the kind of film that starts out seemingly ordinary and gets progressively more bizarre as it goes along. However, it’s all in the context and the audience will get more out of it if they keep that in mind. With a leading cast who play well off each other and an engaging story that feels hard to watch, but also hard to look away, Do Not Disturb is an engaging horror comedy.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
